Members gain the following benefits:
North American Journal of Celtic Studies
CSANA members receive both yearly issues of North America’s premier Celtic Studies journal, NAJCS. Members are also eligible, at the discretion of the journal’s editor, to serve as an Assistant Editor or as a member of the Editorial Board.
Celtic Scholarship Online
Contribute to any of our many digital scholarship initiatives. As a member, you can also propose and spearhead new digital scholarship projects.
Awards and Grants
Members are eligible to apply for any of CSANA’s prizes and scholarly grants. See below for more details.
Members are given the option of being listed in our Directory of Celtic Studies, where we host profiles of Celticists across North America and internationally. This is an especially good opportunity for students seeking to establish a public presence in the field.
Student members of CSANA have access to our network of mentors, where they can receive advice and mentorship by senior scholars in the field. We feel this program is particularly valuable in supporting students at institutions where Celtic Studies is under represented.
Membership with CSANA comes with the ability to purchase Irish Text Society publication at a reduced price.
Members will gain access to CSANA-L, our listserv where all the latest Celtic Studies news, call for papers, and scholarships/fellowships, are announced to members. Additionally, our longer-form newsletter is distributed to members over CSANA-L twice a year.
While attendance to our annual meetings is open to all, membership is required to present at our conference and participate in CSANA business meetings.
Members are entitled to nominate and vote on CSANA officers, approve revision to our by-laws, and vote in membership-wide referenda.
CSANA members in good standing are eligible to compete for any awards and grants the organization offers.
